|Longitudinal Study:||HILDA||Title:||Australian Mobility Report Cards: Which Universities Admit the Most Disadvantaged Students?||Authors:||Leigh, Andrew||Publication Date:||Sep-2021||Pages:||331-342||Abstract:||Tertiary education has a vital role to play in fostering social mobility. To assess the extent to which Australian universities enrol disadvantaged students, I use two measures of disadvantage: neighbourhood characteristics and individual characteristics, and compare higher education institutions. Neighbourhood metrics appear to be a poor proxy for individual disadvantage. Yet even so, some institutions stand out as more effective pathways for disadvantaged students. I conclude with some recommendations for improving data quality, education policy and evaluation in order to make Australian universities more effective engines of social mobility.||DOI:||10.1111/1467-8462.12430||URL:||https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/1467-8462.12430||Research collection:||Journal Articles|
